The largest Panda commemorative ever

While many of the gold and silver Panda issues of the past have been legal-tender coins, some of the scarcest and most valuable are actually non legal-tender commemoratives. There is a rich tradition of China issuing special Pandas to mark major milestones or events. Up until now, the two largest commemorative issues were struck in twelve ounces of silver for the 1986 Hong Kong coin show and the 1997 Munich show. But today, China has shattered that record and stunned the collecting world by unveiling the largest Panda commemorative ever! The 2015 China Panda Moon Festival Silver & Gold Proof contains 2.2 POUNDS of 99.9% pure silver. This massive new Silver & Gold Panda Proof literally fills your palm thanks to its impressive 100mm diameter. But one of the first things you notice when looking at all that silver is that it also contains gold. The moon which the panda is watching in the night sky is struck from a tenth-ounce of 99.9% fine gold. But not just any gold! There's a story hidden within the "moon gold" that you won't believe... 

 

Certified NASA SPACE GOLD

In the mid 1980s, NASA sent six large plates of 24 karat gold into space aboard the Space Shuttle. The gold, along with many other kinds of metals and materials, was installed outside of the International Space Station on a large test vehicle the size of a school bus. Called the NASA Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF), the test was designed to measure the effects of exposure to the severe condition of outer space: extreme temperatures, a constant barrage of space particles, as well as potentially dangerous meteorites. This "space gold" remained in orbit for 69 months-over ( 5 1/2 years ) in outer space. During that time, this gold traveled over 625 million miles around the earth...at a speed of five miles per second! This historic space gold was sent into orbit aboard the Challenger space shuttle, and was later brought back to earth aboard Columbia in early 1990. NASA retained the gold plates for study for the next 25 years following their return to earth. The gold was never intended to be made available to collectors. But recently, these same gold plates which had reflected the moon's light daily for over five years in orbit were brought to auction by the government. The China Mint secured this gold-arguably some of the rarest gold in history-with one sole purpose in mind: To create this spectacular 2015 Moon Festival Panda 2.2 Pound Silver & Gold Proof! Spectacular is definitely the right word, although you could certainly add in: historic, first-ever, unbelievable, and record-breaking too!

 

It's a first ever "Y" Mint Mark

There is one final secret that collectors will cheer about, and it's a single letter "Y" found on back of the proof. Y is the mint mark of the China Shenyang Mint. The 2015 Moon Festival Panda Silver & Gold Proof is the first time ever that this mint mark has appeared on any silver panda issue. The only other Panda bearing a Y mint mark is a gold panda coin issued in 1987. For collectors, this is the equivalent of the first time the West Point "W" mint mark appeared on an American silver coin. It further adds to the collectibility and scarcity of this stunning new Moon Festival Proof.
